In addition to this, the burrito also includes grated spicy pepper-jack cheese, fresh Romano salad and fresh pico de gallo salsa made from minced tomatoes, onions and chili in a lime dressing. It turns out very juicy. Preheat burritos in the microwave and serve with hot sauce and sour cream for dipping.
